About the property

Enjoy the Beach Home Vacation of your dreams at a fraction of the price!

Amazing, Newly Renovated Beach House. Private, huge, beach theme decorated, beautifully furnished, with every amenity you could dream of for your family beach vacation. Lot's of space! Extra beds, WIFI, HDTV's, Blue Tooth Sound Systems and speakers throughout, beach towels, beach toys, bicycles for all, Washer/Dryer, Hardwood floors, Elevator (currently out of operation), BBQ, Outdoor Heater, fenced back yard, outdoor shower, Two Kitchens, Beach Views from Front Deck, beach access within 150' of front door...

Our beautiful, newly renovated beach house is exactly what you have been looking for! Located in THE perfect location on Gulf Blvd. in Redington Beach where you can watch the sunrise or sunset over beautiful Redington Beach OR pristine Boca Ciega Bay from our “Crow’s Nest” balcony every day of the year! Redington Beach is arguably one of the most sun-drenched beaches in America! That's because this amazing part of Florida sees sunlight 361 days out of the year. Put on your swimsuit and flipflops, walk out the front door and cross the street onto the beautiful white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. You will literally be from door to beach in just a few short minutes with beach access being a few houses to the north or south on Gulf Blvd. (The photo of our house from the beach will give you a feel for how close we are to the beach. Unfortunately a new home has since been built on the formerly empty lot. Nevertheless we still have a great view of the beach and, of course our proximity to the beach hasn't changed).

Our “Key West” style beach house sleeps up to 14 people VERY COMFORTABLY! The Second Level (Main Level) of the home has new beach wood floors and has recently been painted. New furniture and beach themed home décor throughout the home will engulf your senses throughout your beach vacation stay. Our Main floor has a fully stocked, modern kitchen with all the utensils, pots, pans and appliances any cook could ask for! The great room and dining area provide ample space for large gatherings of friends and family. A rock fireplace, 48” 1080P flat screen TV with 200w sound bar provides access to DirecTV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other popular streaming services. Even the kids can play on the X Box Gaming System complete with 11 games and dual controls.

Follow the hallway to Bedroom #1, furnished with 2 bunk beds (sleeps 4). The ELEVATOR that provides comfortable access to both floors opens into this bedroom.

Continue down the main hallway to the fully tiled “Grand Bathroom” with 2 sinks, jetted tub, separate shower. Bedroom #2, with brand new carpet contains a new queen bed and 24” 1080P flat screen TV, also with satellite and streaming video access. Across the hallway is the master bedroom. With access to the grand bathroom the master bedroom is the perfect place to retreat and rest after an amazing day at the beach. Lay back and relax to your 32” 1080P flat screen TV. Watch what you want! After all, you have satellite and streaming TV access to thousands of viewing choices! Every room in the house includes Bluetooth portable stereo units so you can listen to your downloaded music with crisp clear sound at any level.

Two roll away twin beds add extra sleeping space for larger groups. The Main level will sleep up to 8 people.

The first floor unit is all tile and has been freshly painted and decorated. With a mini kitchen, complete with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, appliance, cooking and eating utensils.

The elevator opens to a comfortably sized sitting room (elevator is currently out of operation). The Main Family Room is furnished with a large, brand new sectional couch and two 'X Twin' futons. This area is perfect for smaller gatherings. When it is time to go to bed, the gathering area comfortably sleeps 4 people. The family room is also furnished with a 40” 1080P flat screen TV with satellite and streaming access.

Directly off the Family room is a bedroom furnished with 4 twin beds (one is a pull out trundle twin). Two of the beds can be pushed together to make a cozy, comfortable queen bed. A bathroom with a shower finish off the 1st level living area. Of course all the rooms include top line Bluetooth sound systems and are decorated in cheerful beach décor!

The first floor level comfortably sleeps 8 people. Combining both levels a large family or group of 14 people can comfortably rest for the night.

Beach parking won’t be a problem here! No more costly parking fees while spending time at the beach! With a 2.5 car garage and a half circle driveway, 3-4 cars can park! By the way, the garage includes a full washer and dryer and it is stocked with all the gear you could possibly need for your Florida beach vacation! Beach toys, fishing gear, picnic coolers, beach blankets, umbrellas, beach chairs and more! 11 bicycles and 2 child scooters will make your local commute or touring an absolute pleasure! Winn Dixie Market and CVS pharmacy are only 2 blocks down the street, not to mention 'The Surf Shop', located about a block from the house and 'John's Pass', a favorite destination of locals and visitors which is less than two miles down Gulf Blvd. John's pass is home to 'Buba Gumps', 'Hooters', local pizzerias, beach bars, deep sea fishing tours, a marina and lots of shopping. 'John's Pass' is a 'must see' on your list of places to visit. If mini golf is your pleasure, you can walk one block south and enjoy yourself! We have you covered for your daily walk/bike to the beach. With luxurious, over sized beach towels provided for each guest, 6 beach chairs, 3 beach umbrellas, a rolling/backpack cooler, 4 mini coolers, loads of children’s beach toys and 7 body boards, your family has everything necessary for hours of fun and relaxation at our pristine beach! And… after a sandy day at the beach, shower off with our back yard shower!

A six burner BBQ grill and patio fire pit does the trick for restful nights in the back yard. The back porch is made up of beautiful shale and is surrounded by dozens of palm trees and fauna, natural to the Florida Gulf Coast. Want to check out the beach and the sunrise or sunset? You can do so from the oversized deck that can be accessed from either of 2 French Doors that open off the Main Level Great Room. Walk up another level to our “Crows Nest Deck”. Now you are above it all! To the west , your view is that of the Inter coastal Waterway known as Boca Ciega Bay. To the east is an unimpeded view of the crashing waves against the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico! Patio furniture on every deck and in the backyard finish off the accouterments that ensure your total comfort throughout your vacation stay.

Even though you have all you need for an amazing vacation and never need to leave the house, you are located in THE premiere location on Florida's Gulf Coast! The 'Suncoast Beach Trolley' and the 'Pinnelas Suncoast Transit Authority' buses pass the house every 15-30 minutes 365 days a year! The stop is located directly at the base of our driveway!

About Craig Gibson

My wife (Karen) and I love our beach vacations! We absolutely love the Gulf. For years we have traveled with our large family (8 children, 8 grandchildren and 3 lovely daughters in law) to various beaches for our family vacations. We absolutely love renting beach homes, particularly because nothing matches the feeling of hanging out in beach towns and communities. Last year, after returning from one of our annual Caribbean Cruises we drove down the Florida Gulf Coast looking for houses. We found this perfect home in Redington Beach and have furnished it, painted it, decorated it and prepared it so we could have a slice of the beach life we have always longed for. We currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah and we visit Florida whenever we can. We are happy to share this great home on the beach with you!

It remains our sincere goal to provide our guests with a great vacation experience. We know how long and hard people save for their precious vacations and we truly want you to have a happy, positive memory of your stay. We will not promote or represent anything in our home that is not real and genuine. The complete satisfaction of our guests remains our priority and we will do everything within our power to provide you with one of your happiest, relaxing beach vacations ever.

Craig Gibson purchased this house in 2014

Why Craig Gibson chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

If you are an experienced beach vacationer like we are, you know how much it can cost to spend a night.. or a week... or more, in a beach house. Some of the homes in our neighborhood rent for $800 - $1,500/night! Not to mention the beach hotels along the coast between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach. These hotels rates range from $200-$500/night! Our particular beach house is located on Gulf Blvd. Same Blvd. as any other beach house in the region. The difference between our beach rental and the other beach rentals is that we live across the street from the beach. Even though our property is not on the beach itself, it still has all the views, all the feel, all the convenience and only steps away from the beach. The difference is that you, your friends and your family can stay an entire week in our beach house for just about what it would cost you to stay 1 or 2 nights with our neighbors across the street. We have an amazing location at an absolute fraction of the cost!! Why wouldn't we buy this property? Besides, with our 'Key West' architecture, we absolutely fell in love with this house the minute we drove past it last summer for the first time.

What makes this house unique

You are staying in a Beach House at a mere fraction of the cost of many other houses in the area. Not only do we have a great location with amazing beach and water views, this home has every amenity anybody vacationing at the beach could ever want. 10 bicycles, HD TV's in every room, patio furnishings, a brand new quartz glass patio heater, a 6 burner BBQ, shower in the yard, beach towels, boogie boards, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach coolers.... We even have a washer and dryer for you and.... get this... we have an elevator to get you from the 1st floor to the 2nd floor! This is such a great place to stay. You won't be sorry for choosing to spend your vacation in this awesome beach home!!!

Great Family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This house is a wonderful place for a great family get-away. The nine of us just returned home after a relaxing stress free holiday. Early morning beach walks, afternoon ocean swimming and bike rides, bbq grilling for supper in the private back yard. The beach is gorgeous and a quick walk across the street. Forget a cooking item - just a 3 minute bike ride to the grocery store. Wonderful bike trails all around you, farmer's markets to buy fresh produce, quiet safe neighborhood. Craig and property mgrs friendly and helpful. We feel so blessed to have found a "home away from home," and hope to return next year!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Everything we needed was provided so we didn't have to pack extra for extra stress. Beach is beautiful and surprisingly empty, we had the entire beach to ourselves (besides the occasional beach walker). Lots of good restaurants and bars near by. If you're a sushi lover, jimmys is a must. Highly recommend this area and home.

THE perfect beach house! We WILL return again!

  • 5 of 5

Like all the reviews say, this beach house is perfect! Location is awesome, house is absolutely perfect. Not only are you directly across the street from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida but the house itself has every amenity we could have ever wished for in a beach vacation rental. The owners care about the guests and would do anything to make our vacation stay perfect. They are in this business for all the right reasons. Plus, the house is perfectly located close to so many places to eat, see and do. Less that a half hour from Busch Gardens and about 15 minutes to Clearwater Aquarium, not to mention, about 2 minutes to John's Pass. Plus, the dozen or so bikes they have for use of their guests are perfectly maintained and we're all in perfect working condition!

No wonder The Gibson's house is always booked. They have establish a little piece of beach vacation paridise for a very reasonable cost! We WILL be back!

Awesome Vacation !

  • 5 of 5

We took a cousin's trip to Florida, and stayed at Craig and Karen's beach house in Redington Beach. Craig was very responsive in answering questions, and updating us with information about the house. The house accommodated all 12 of us comfortably, and would be good for an even bigger group. The layout of the house was very nice, and it was very well stocked with pretty much everything you could need. The house is directly across the street from the beach. The rooftop deck was amazing as well to watch the sunset or sunrise. We would stay here again in a heartbeat !

Family fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 13 stayed here over Christmas quite comfortably. I think we all agreed our favorite part was being across the street from the beach. It was a beautiful, quiet beach area and we pretty much had it all to ourselves! You do need quick feet to get across the busy 4-lane road in front of the property....but we used the cart with wheels provided (in garage) to carry beach chairs and gear which helped a lot. Pretty much every thing we needed was already in the garage-from beach blankets to sand toys and chairs, floats, fishing poles and cooler bags. There were ice packs already frozen in the freezer as well. The teenagers in our group loved the bikes...we put on a lot of miles biking and just exploring the area. The older kids all slept and hung out in the basement which they really enjoyed feeling independent. Our younger kids enjoyed the deep bath tub after a long day at the beach. I personally loved having the porch attached to the kitchen to sip coffee in the morning and enjoy the sun. The kitchen had everything we needed-very well appointed. Games were a nice touch as well-wish we could have used them. Had too much fun biking and spending time at the beach....no downtime! Grocery store is within biking/walking distance as was the super fun mini golf and bait shop. Pretty much everything you need is close and this area does not feel touristy or overcrowded. We would have loved to stay longer-hopefully next time!
